Glad to hear from someone interested in the Goetz family line. This is my wife's family. I have nothing beyond Adam Goetz. He is the immigrant on this line. I believe he immigrated abt 1834 from Germany. I have not yet located the ship pasenger list. I need to do that. This is the same time that J. Philip Goetz also immigrated. I believe very strongly that they were brothers but have no proof other than circumstantial things.
As for Mary Ann Bryan - I have not yet done substantial research on her family. The death certificate of Adam and Mary's youndest son, Joseph H. Goetz, listed her name as Mary Ann Bryan. Her newspaper obituary listed her name as Mary Magdalene widow of Adam Goetz. I have never seen Mary Alice referred to in any records.
My record of the family of Martin Luther Goetz is incomplete. He had a grandson Ambrose C. Goetz. Not sure how he fits. Was planning to check for his obituary. But perhaps you can help by providing information on Martin's family. I had Martin's wife as Mary A. Swisher. I got her maiden name from the obituary of her son, Brant C. Goetz. I will make the correction to Sweitzer. Thanks. I will try to download some information and forward to you via another email.
Look forward to hearing from you. If you live in the Franklin County area, perhaps we could meet and I could share additional information with you.
